Why Do You Need a Lawyer?
Your car accident claim in Texas will go to the at-fault party’s auto insurer. After you file your initial report, you should hear back from a claims adjuster shortly. The claims adjuster’s goal is to get you to settle for as little as possible. Many insurance companies try to take advantage of clients, and may even deny valid claims. Hiring a lawyer prevents insurance adjusters from taking advantage of you. It can also help you with tasks such as identifying the at-fault party and completing your paperwork to bring a claim before the deadline.
Common Causes of Car Accidents
Most motor vehicle accidents arise out of negligence. Vehicles are weapons, and all drivers have a duty to operate them responsibly. Negligent, reckless, or careless driving causes the majority of Texas auto accidents. In Texas, 1,024 people in 2017 died in drunk driving accidents. Another 449 people lost their lives in distracted driving crashes. Many different things can cause a fatal car accident:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Drowsy driving
- Ignoring rights-of-way
- Unsafe lane changes
- Breaking traffic laws
- Poor vehicle maintenance
- Defective car parts
- Dangerous roadways
Some of the most common car accident injuries include neck and back injuries, bone fractures, lacerations, contusions, burns, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries. Many crash survivors in Texas have permanent reminders of their accidents, from physical disfigurement or disabilities to lasting emotional damage. These victims may have the right to compensation for their losses.
Who Is Liable?
Texas is a fault-based insurance state. This means the at-fault party will be liable to pay for everyone’s damages. Other drivers are often the at-fault parties in car accident claims, but not always. Property owners, product manufacturers, the government, and other parties may also share fault. If you need help identifying the liable party in your car accident claim, speak to one of our attorneys in Huntsville.
